Creating Your First Costume

Here are ten tips for creating a great LARP (Live Action Role Play) costume for Myth:

  1. Plan ahead: Give yourself enough time to plan, gather materials, and create your costume. The earlier you start, the more time you have to make changes and perfect your outfit.
  2. Research your character: Learn as much as possible about the character you are portraying. This research will help you create a costume that accurately represents how you imagine it.
  3. Choose durable materials: LARP costumes take a lot of wear and tear, so choose durable materials that can stand up to the elements.
  4. Be mindful of safety: Ensure your costume does not impede your movement or vision and avoid flammable or dangerous materials.
  5. Add details: Small details can make a big difference in a costume. Add buttons, embroidery, or other embellishments to give your costume more character.
  6. Consider layering: Layering can help you stay warm in cooler weather and add dimension to your costume.
  7. Invest in good shoes: Good shoes are essential for comfort and safety during LARP events. Make sure your shoes fit well, look the part, and provide good support.
  8. Accessorize: Accessories can help complete your costume and bring it to life. Consider adding jewelry, hats, or other items appropriate for your character.
  9. Get feedback: Ask other players for feedback on your costume. They may have suggestions for improving it or may have seen similar outfits that can inspire you.
  10. Have fun: Above all, have fun with your costume! Myth is a creative and immersive hobby, and your costume is essential to the experience.
